“Know Thyself” is a primary spiritual directive of all the faiths.
Not only does self- awareness give us a connection into the realms beyond the mundane, but it also is a vital aid to us in our journey in this world.
To be self- aware is to know one’s position in life. It is knowledge of one’s inner map.
Without a map, we stray, for how will we know where we are going?
As coach, I promote clients' self- awareness so that they can then mentor or coach themselves when I am no longer in the picture. Each person then learns to give themselves good advice instead of merely turning life decisions over to the advice of others.
Self- awareness helps people make better decisions. The more self- aware one is, the more one is enabled to predict the outcomes of their choices. It gives them the power to determine what is working and what is not working, to become, in effect, the true creator of their own life. In seeing what is good and what needs fixing, better choices are made.
One who becomes aware of their strengths and weaknesses can change or compensate for them. When we “know what we don’t know” and accept it, we can solicit help for those areas in which we are weak, and move forward more strongly in the areas in which we are strong. If, for example, we are aware of personal sabotage patterns, shortcomings, fear of success or failure or whatever may hold us back, we can then make choices that reach beyond what we feel safe with, even to choose the more difficult or risky path when that makes good sense. This is the key to a life that is exceptional. Without self knowledge, one is unlikely to be succeed beyond te mundane.
Self- awareness not only empowers us to make good decisions, but also helps builds self esteem. When we know ourelves, we can see more clearly our choices and our power.
We have a feeling of faith in knowing that we are capable to take charge and responsibility for our own lives.
